Deer Tick is in the midst of a rather unique celebration of the Rhode Island outfit’s 10th anniversary: a six-night residency in which the band covers a different classic album each night.
Friday’s performance was NRBQ’s Tiddlywinks, Saturday’s was Lou Reed’s seminal Transformer with the help of fellow Reed disciples Sharon Van Etten and Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles, who guested on lively renditions of “Perfect Day” and “I’m So Free”, respectively. Sunday night was dedicated to The Beatles’ second US album, Meet the Beatles!, and featured a handful of guest appearances from The Replacements’ Tommy Stinson, Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, Robert Ellis, and The Felice Brothers’ James Felice.
